Octomom investigated for possible welfare fraud

March 20 (UPI) -- A complaint was lodged with L.A. County Department of Welfare Fraud Prevention and Investigation (WFP&I), claiming "Octomom" Nadya Suleman is getting welfare and food stamps even though she made nearly $200,000 in 2012, according to TMZ.

Under California law, Suleman can collect welfare for her and her 14 kids if she makes $119,000 or less in a calendar year. She allegedly made more than that on stripping and various publicity stunts including her infamous porn video.

The WFP&I is reportedly conducting a probe and has already interviewed several witnesses. E! News reports that a source close to Suleman has been questioned by WFP&I. "I can confirm that the authorities have been in contact with us concerning her income and we have been cooperating," said the insider.
